Implantology is a huge discipline which interfaces with the specialties of Prosthodontics, Periodontics, and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. Prosthodontics, focuses on dental implant, esthetic, and reconstructive dentistry.
Dental implants are an extremely popular alternative to dentures and bridges for replacing missing teeth. A permanent solution, a dental implant actually bonds with the surrounding gum and bone. The result is not only an improved smile, but enhanced self-esteem and improved nutrition with the restoration of full chewing capability.
Dental Arts of South Jersey offers a full range of general and specialty dental care at its 16,000 square-foot South Jersey Professional Center on Laurel Oak Road in Voorhees. The dentists in the practice use fine-grain porcelains and precious alloys in crafting crown and bridge restorations by master laboratory technicians. They also utilize the i-CAT 3-D imaging system, which delivers three-dimensional pictures of the face and jaw areas for precise mapping prior to a dental implant surgical procedure.
